One of Women’s Tennis Blog’s signature sections is definitely the Grand Slam fashion overview and this fortnight at the big stage of Wimbledon we can see how the famous sports brands and WTA players made sure to stand out and provide something authentic within the limits of the all-white rule.
Bethanie Mattek Sands started pushing the boundaries already at the Pre-Wimbledon Party, matching her colorful hair with a screaming yellow thin belt on an elegant white gown, while for her first-round match against Angelique Kerber she partially covered her crazy hairstyle with a cap and stood out with the eye-catching tattoos and unique knee-high socks. Interestingly, the American opted out from debuting Google Glass eyewear in the opener.

Rising-star Camila Giorgi made a name for herself in the tennis fashion world at last year’s Wimbledon, wearing attractive lace separates by American designer Denise Cronwall, and even though I’m not sure who the designer behind her clothes this year is (Mona Barthel was officially wearing Denise this fortnight), the pretty Italian again made a fashion statement with an elegant high-neck pullover for warm-up, paired with a flirty skirt, while her tank top featured a colorful zig-zag lacing in the back.
Caroline Wozniacki, the major representative of Adidas by Stella McCartney, wore a white dress whose primary focus was on the open back and mash details on the sides.
During her short and slippery appearance at Wimbledon 2013, marked with three falls in a single match, Maria Sharapova wore the Nike Women’s London Premier Maria Flounce Dress, while her fellow Nike-clad superstar Serena Williams challenged the Wimbledon rules with bright orange shorts and the matching crazy manicure.
Jelena Jankovic‘s dress is pure white with the little Fila logo being the only color feature. The skirt is pleated and there is a small opening in the back.
Agnieszka Radwanska‘s blond hair is growing on people as the Pole is working a fashionable and sporty Lotto dress.
Home darling Laura Robson has reached the third round of Wimbledon for the first time in her career and she’s done it in style, wearing Adidas by Stella McCartney polo shirt.
Venus Williams had a wonderful EleVen piece in store for her favorite Wimbledon, with stylish racer back, and even though the American withdrew from the tournament citing a lower back injury, the dress did see the light of the day on Johanna Konta.
